About Fox Wood Play Sessions:
Fox Wood Play sessions are all about child led play - a range of things are provided to interest and engage children, but they choose what to do. There are hammocks, a mud kitchen, rope swing, muddy hill and ditch, mud painting, bug hunting equipment, tools, a potion station, fire lighting, den building... lots and lots of opportunities for open ended play.
When you arrive come and say hello to Lou or Ange, our Forest School Leaders and sign yourself in on the register.
Some weeks there will be play suggestions on the black boards, craft, cooking, exploring nature, group games - but we recognise there is much greater value, excitement, adventure and learning to be had through children's own exploration and free play. This is when children are at their most creative, imaginative, confident and resilient, working together, trying out new things, exploring their boundaries and building friendships. So whilst we do offer some activities the focus is firmly on child led play in nature. We will continue to work on enriching the site to support your child's play and their engagement with nature.
About 20 mins before the end of the session we ask children to return tools and equipment to the log circle. We gather together in the log circle and invite them to reflect on what they have enjoyed or found challenging and what they want to do next time they come to play at Fox Wood. This is a nice way to draw the session to a close, but we are of course flexible if you need to leave before the end.
